|29 August, 2007 (London, UK) – Poker really does get passed down through the genes! Step forward Pamela Brunson – she’s just claimed her first major poker tournament triumph by winning the World Poker Tour (WPT) Ladies Night V at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles.|
Pamela saw off competition from the likes of Evelyn Ng and Kathy Liebert to claim the first prize of more than $34,000 and a seat in the prestigious WPT Ladies Night Out which will be held on August 31st.
Brunson will sit at the table alongside some of the world’s top female pros, namely Linda Johnson, Mimi Tran, Kristy Gazes, Melissa Hayden and JJ Liu, who won the tournament last year. The winner will get a $25,000 seat into the WPT World Championship next year.
Pamela is the daughter of Doyle Brunson, the ‘Godfather of Poker’ and ultimate poker living legend. Having a genius poker player for a father helps, of course - but the tournament triumph was all down to Pamela. She was delighted to secure one of the biggest wins on the circuit.
She said: “I am so excited! Apart from a seat into the WPT Ladies Night Out - an invitational event - playing against five women poker players - I also won a beautiful ring, a pink poker chip set, jacket and, of course, the trophy that crowns me LPA Tour No-Limit Hold’em Tournament winner – at least, that’s what the trophy states!”
